Day 0...

Finished packing jobs at about 1am...awake now at 5.48am...must be Day 0! Leave for Whitehaven at 1110. Grateful to my friends Chris and Sandy who are giving me a lift to the station, and Martin who's meeting me for a coffee before the train leaves.

I may be mad, but I've decided to pack my running gear-i'll hang my trainers off my pack!-as I anticipate missing the occasional sprint. It seems to exercise different muscles than walking/cycling-muscles that complain after a few days of inactivity. I always feel better after even a short jog and it may actually help me walk the distances these next two weeks. But I may be wrong and need to mail the kit back to Sheffield...we'll see!

One disappointment in last-minute packing was small but annoying-i couldn't fit all the music bits onto my Blackberry-the media card is too small! A few things I'd hoped to listen to didn't make it-Just a Minute, some Lloyd-Jones sermons, some Cds of Nat Tasker, and most of my classical selections-but it means that what I did get to transfer I'm more likely to listen to instead of picking and choosing. Plus there's always the radio-reception permitting.

Time for a cup of tea! Roll on half 10...
